Romance meets author's political agenda stretched over a thin and uninteresting science fiction frame, set, rather coincidently, in space.

I'm a fan of Connelley's audio books, UNTIL THIS ONE! The irritating, boring, repetitive background "mood" noise has ruined it. Shame on whoever had this DUMB idea to add a soundtrack behind the reader. GAG ! ! !

What would have made The Lost City of the Monkey God better?

If it had really been about Ciudad Blanca, or whatever.

Would you ever listen to anything by Douglas Preston again?

NO

What didn’t you like about Bill Mumy’s performance?

Nothing. Sophomoric at best.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Yes, if you like detailed descriptions of parasitic diseases. Yech!

Any additional comments?

Others have described what's wrong with this book. Read the negative reviews. Good luck!

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I am SO DISSAPOINTED ! Waited for MONTHS for the next Grisham audible book. When it arrived I bought it immediately, then was horrified by the awful reader! Gratingly irritating voice and laughable characterizations make this book a BOMB for me. I'm returning it.

Would you try another book from Gary J. Byrne and/or Brian Troxell?

NO. I DON'T LIKE THE CLINTONS but this lame, self-serving and amateurish book makes them look good by comparison..

What was most disappointing about Gary J. Byrne’s story?

It's all about HIM. Who cares?

What didn’t you like about Brian Troxell’s performance?

He tried, but the book is just TOOOO bad to save.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

NONE. It's in the trash.
